HC Deb 25 April 1910 vol 17 c220W

asked whether the Board of Agriculture has considered the question of compensation to the vendors of carcases seized in the public interest, in view of the fact that large quantities of meat are condemned for tuberculosis which cannot be detected before slaughtering; and, if so, what action, if any, he proposes to take?


I have considered this question, but I am not in a position to propose legislation on the subject.
